[Spellyans] Ballroom dancing

I agree 'that stevel' may not be the best choice. However there is a semantic distinction between a 'dance' and a 'ball'. A 'ball' is a type of dance event. 
 There is also a distinction between 'ballroom' and 'dance hall'. 'Ballroom dancing' entails dances such as the waltz, the foxtrot, the tango and precludes hornpipes, reels, and breakdancing. More suggestions, please.
 Ol an gwella,
 Jon

Usually the word indicates a chamber or dining-room; something a lot smaller than the space required for ballroom dancing.
